I like a song that I can learn something from. A challenge so to speak. I also play the harp by ear and don't know that much about one. I like trying to play a harp but don't want it to become so much work that I get frustrated with it.
When I run into something I can't figure out, I try to figure out a way that I can play it anyway. It may not be the same as the original but I won't care. If I enjoy playing and keep at it, Someday i may have little difficulty in playing anything I come across.
So, I don't really care what kind of tunes are put forth, I will attempt them. If I try and can't get it perfect, I most likely will still come up with a rendition I can play.
I agree about song choice, the original intent is that players vote in a poll for songs that we all nominate, and then the two winners become the practise tunes. I hope when Marcy gets back that resumes.
Having said that I take the opportunity to learn the tunes, even when I don't like them (ad some teachers seriously advise you learn tunes you don't like because you learn a lot from them.
I don't read music with the harp, I learn by ear which does take time, but once you get used to it, it becomes quite easy.
And it's quite interesting that so many of the modern tunes we think are modern can be found in Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, so they may all in their way be 300 year old tunes.
Maybe Marcy will be back with us soon. I think she's been pretty busy.
Now that Marcy has disappeared the pool of players does seem to have shrunk. We should make it mandatory, but that would never work.
I know the feeling.
Been overrun by life lately and haven't even been able to play a little bit.
I did throw a harmonica in the truck today so I could play if I got stuck in traffic or had some alone time.
I have tried to upload video on here so you play. And you cannot watch others also. It should not be this hard
What is going on. I'm not a computer...I have tried to upload video on here so you play. And you cannot watch others also. It should not be this hard
What is going on. I'm not a computer expert. and maybe harmonica club don;t like videos on here. I give up Show more
I hope to be able to join in soon - when I can string the notes together sufficiently for people to be able to at least recognise what I am trying to play.
Good job Andy!
It's nice to see a few more folks playing tunes in this thread.
Nicely done, Andy.
I tried Vimeo, but couldn't figure it out, so went back to Youtube, with all its ills.
